Secret of the Cave
A young teenage boy named Roy is abandoned by his recently single father and left alone on his uncle’s door step. While the young boy is Irish in heritage he has lived his entire life in America. He therefore must face a culture change when he is forced to live in the small Irish town. The town is full of superstitious old folk and paranoid villagers whom believe that their town is haunted by the recently deceased.
Roy is befriended by two young villagers named Oscar and Abbey. He must put together the pieces of the puzzle that has perplexed this town it seems like instantaneously and overnight. The key to solving this dilemma is within this cave that is only accessible during low tide.
The acting is quant and seemingly mundane. If thi ^s is what every small town is like in Ireland than I’m staying in America. Each character is different and unique yet at the same time they are all alike. The saying goes the more things change the more they stay the same. I guess that’s true for people too. ( at least in small Irish towns.) The plot is slow moving and not totally original. It seems like there are always small town in England with quant villagers that have perplexing tendencies.
The story although is enjoyable and can be enjoyed by all. Assuming your child has the patience to sit through the slow parts. (which seems to consume the movie. All and all I enjoyed it. There was a lesson to be learned and a moral within that message. What is the message you ask? Well you’ll just have to rent the video to find out. After w may all discover a new lesson within the same message.

A note from an editor!
Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!
We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.
There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.
I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.
Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!
Talk to you soon!
